Edithburgh has quite a few historical buildings and a historical jetty. Walking around, I found some cute old historic cottages, some were surrounded with a thick wall made out of the local stone.
One of the cottages was very old. It was built out of the local stone and had a flat sloping roof. The Cottage had continually been added too, an original that you find in the north and where Miner's lived and worked. Not many of these left now, so I was very happy to find this Cottage.
The Edithburgh Hotel built in 1878 is a National Trust building, and so is the Troubridge Hotel, even older, being built in 1873.

BOWLING CLUB MURAL
On the side of the Edithburgh RSL and Bowls Club is a lovely mural depicting both clubs and showing historical aspects of the town.
Ann Harris of Yorketown took more than 70 hours to completely paint the Mural, a job she was quoted as saying "she loved doing."
She has painted a number of Murals on Yorke Peninsula

THE INVESTIGATOR SHIPWRECK TRAIL
This is a trail we followed all around the coast of Yorke Peninsula.
By following the trail, we stopped at places along the way where Ships had been wrecked.
Between 1849 and 1982, 26 vessels are known to have been wrecked in these waters, with the loss of more than 70 lives.
The shipwrecks along the trail were selected for their strange and tragic circumstances surrounding their loss, historical significance and for providing a underwater experience for beginners and advanced divers alike. Not all wrecks along this coast have been discovered.
Six interpretive signs are located along the coastline where the wrecks are located
